Smart speakers are very useful, and in recent years smart speakers have emerged as a whole new category with built-in screens. In some situations, having a display makes them even more versatile, but have you ever wanted to just pick up that smart screen and take it with you? If you do, you should check out the Smart Tab line from Lenovo, especially when they’re on sale for their best prices ever.
When docked, they combine the best of an Android tablet with an Alexa-enabled speaker dock that turns it into something similar to an Echo Show. Right now, the Smart Tab M10 HD and Smart Tab P10 tablet and dock combos at Amazon are down to just $79.99 and $149.99, respectively. Both prices represent new all-time low prices, even beating the Black Friday and Cyber Monday discounts offered. The catch is that only today’s deals are available.
The M10 HD tablet includes the 10-inch HD display of the same name, two Dolby Atmos front speakers, and more. It is powered by a 429 processor 2 GHz Snapdragon, 2 GB RAM, and has 32 GB of internal storage plus support for up to 256 GB microSD cards. It runs Android and has access for apps to the Google Play Store, lasts about 8 hours per charge, and even has a built-in kids mode so you can feel safe to hand it over to your kids.
However, the dock included is what makes this product unique. Set the tablet down and it becomes an intelligent, Alexa-enabled screen with the audio-providing 6W speaker array of the dock. You can use Alexa to get information, show recipes, play music, add to your shopping list, make video calls, and more exactly as you would on the company’s own Echo hardware. It can also control your smart home accessories that are compatible with Alexa. Naturally, the dock also makes a convenient tablet charger.
The Smart Tab P10 works in the same way, but this top-spec model is equipped with RAM 4 GB and expandable storage 64 GB. For improved sound quality, it also has four front-facing speakers with Dolby Atmos. It usually sells for $350 and it’s $25 less today than it was on Cyber Monday.
Both of these deals are limited to today as part of a larger PC and tablet sales. Of course, these may sell out before that, so if you want one, it’s best to order immediately to avoid disappointment.
